American Tax Policy Institute

Promoting and Facilitating Scholarly Research, Analysis, Examination...

In 1989, a group of leading tax practitioners and academics formed the American Tax Policy Institute, a section 501 (c)(3) organization. Today ATPI´s members and Trustees are some of the leading experts on taxation from the fields of law, accounting and economics. ATPI´s primary purpose is to promote and facilitate non-partisan scholarly research analysis and discussion of U.S. federal, state and local tax policy issues. It supports cutting-edge scholarship in law, accounting or economics that will aid policy makers and administrators and improve our tax system.

ATPI makes grants and provides other support for roundtable discussions and conferences to further its mission and bring attention to important and timely tax policy issues. The ATPI Board of Trustees considers grant requests and makes awards on a semi-annual basis.

ATPI conference papers can be accessed at the "Past Conferences" link above. Most papers can be accessed on-line; some must be accessed in the journal or book identified with the conference title.


The Institute receives significant support from the Section of Taxation of the American Bar Association and from the American College of Tax Counsel.
